How surprising when you find
that the song nestling in the corner of your
head is not the one your bruised heart
thought it was;
in this one, life and love go on.
And your bruised heart was thinking about mapping someone else's permanent
birthmarks on your own too-virgin
skin while
your head was remembering someone else's clever poem and something about baby teeth, and
how to not need anymore.
